Add a Coastal Touch to Your Home - Inspiration from the Oregon Coast Posted on 02 Oct 17:11 , 0 comments

Beautiful Coastal Accents Inspired by my Recent Trip to the Oregon Coast

Oregon Coast - Innovations Designer Home Decor

My husband and I just got back from a vacation in Oregon visiting Portland, the Mt. Hood area, and the beautiful Oregon coast, including Astoria, Cannon Beach, Depoe Bay, and Yachatz. The scenery was breathtaking. We were thrilled to have exceptional weather - clear blue skies and warm days. It was quite a change from our southern California home. While on the coast I loved seeing the beautiful coastal furniture and decor which inspired me when we got back to highlight some of my favorite coastal pieces available on our shopping site.

Driftwood Candleholders, 2-Piece Set - Innovations Designer Home Decor

I love these faux weathered driftwood candleholders on crystal bases. We saw lots of driftwood on the Oregon coast, and these beautiful candleholders are reminiscent of that gorgeous landscape.

Please take a look at our wonderful selection of unique candleholders. Now is the time of year to light candles for a beautiful warm glow and the scents of autumn.

Driftwood Round Glass Top Cocktail Table - Innovations Designer Home Decor

If you're looking for a very unique coffee table with a coastal touch, look no further than this eye-catching driftwood table. The base consists of natural unfinished teak driftwood that is sculpted into a sturdy table with a clear round glass top.

We have a beautiful selection of occasional tables in all shapes, sizes, and designs. Please take a look. Unique coffee and accent tables are a great way to inject your personality into your decor.

Driftwood Round Wall Mirror - Innovations Designer Home Decor 

This distinctive framed mirror is inspired by the soft sandy hues of driftwood. The surface pattern of this unique mirror is achieved by building each piece out of individual precision-cut pieces of mango wood. The pieces are first lightened and then given a subtle creamy wash to achieve the look of driftwood.

Please check out our extensive selection of mirrors. At this time of year when we have less daylight, a mirror will brighten your home and reflect light.

Tarnished Silver Whale Fluke Sculptures, 2-Piece Set - Innovations Designer Home Decor

One of the things we enjoyed most on the Oregon coast was seeing the gray whales migrating. They came very close to shore and we even got to see their tails come out of the water. These beautiful sculptures remind me of the sight of these magnificent animals.

We have a beautiful selection of all types of sculptures. I love using sculptures on tabletops and pedestals. They add a unique charm to your home.

Winged Flight Brushed Brass Wall Sculpture - Innovations Designer Home Decor

We certainly saw lots of seagulls and other sea birds along the Oregon coast. This stunning wall sculpture captures the beauty of these birds in flight. It's a unique and lively handcrafted piece of wall decor that will add a coastal touch to your decor.

We have an exceptional selection of wall sculptures. Think about adding a wall sculpture to your home over a mantel or on a large wall. 

Verdant Impressions Leaf Watercolor Framed Prints - Innovations Designer Home Decor

We saw so many beautiful ferns and greenery throughout Oregon, but especially along the coast. Forests filled with ferns lead to gorgeous beaches. This nine piece set of watercolor prints would create a spectacular gallery wall.

Please take a look at our entire selection of artwork. We have captivating pieces in every possible style.

Add a Touch of the Beach to Your Decor

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh sea air or wiggling your toes in the sand at the beach? Well, you don't need to live by the ocean to enjoy coastal or tropical design.
